That being said, she’ll just go ahead and cash this $75,000 for all that sex she had with him. thesuperficial]
Man Marries Pillow – True love can take many forms. In this case, it has taken the form of a Korean man falling in love with, and eventually marrying, a large pillow with a picture of a woman on it. ‘He is completely obsessed with this pillow and takes it everywhere,’ said one friend. ‘They go out to the park or the funfair where it will go on all the rides with him. Then when he goes out to eat he takes it with him and it gets its own seat and its own meal,’ they added. Excellent! [metro]
Veil Lifts Slightly on Apple’s Secret Plan to Control the Universe – The recently unveiled secret agreement that Apple makes iPhone developers sign supports what many have suspected all along: Apple is trying to control the universe.

The 10 Most Expensive Internet Domain Names – Sex.com, one of the most expensive domain names in history, is up for auction, with bidding starting at $1 million. The domain name was last bought in 2006 for a reported $14 million, but what are the others in the top 10? Like Vodka.com and Insure.com and Beer.com and casino.com?
